Hall of Famers Mike Ditka, Ozzie Newsome and Kellen Winslow are among the tight ends selected as finalists for the NFL’s All-Time Team.
The league on Monday revealed 12 tight ends — Dallas’ Jason Witten is the only active one — and 40 offensive linemen. Those numbers will be pared down by a 26-member panel to five tight ends, seven tackles, seven guards and four centers.
The current list is loaded with Canton inductees, including such tackles as Dan Dierdorf, Art Shell and Anthony Munoz; guards Jim Parker, Bruce Matthews and John Hannah; and centers Jim Ringo, Jim Otto and Mike Webster.
The finalists, in alphabetical order by position:
